Man Who Started Street Fight Insists He 'Settled' Brooklyn, Like Christopher Columbus

A bizarre video of a jogger starting a street fight with a random by-passer is becoming a viral hit.

Filmed from across the street, the video shows the aggressive white man shouting racist remarks at another white man, while a police officer stands in the middle of them.

The unidentified man (who clearly believes he is Christopher Columbus) can be heard yelling: "The only reason white people like you live here is because I settled this fucking neighbourhood for you!"

He goes on to say that he "fights for a living", adding: "I’ll kill you with one punch. You’re messing with the wrong guy."

The video starts mid-fight so it's unclear what started the row, but a woman with a baby in a pram is present, prompting the jogger to shout: "You push your stroller into people? Your baby could get hurt… I fight babies like you, baby!”

The woman with the pram calls the jogger a "sick fuck", at which point he finishes his rant by saying: “You’re a sick fuck!

"White privilege! White fucking privilege! You pushed your stroller right into me, and all I say was ‘excuse you,’ and then you said, ‘fuck you fuck you!’ You fucking white trash!”

Wow. We bet the people of Brooklyn sure are thankful he 'settled' it.
